Enjoy a 9-night luxury safari in Africa's prime safari destination, Kenya. Discover snow-capped mountains, savanna grasslands and enjoy game drives. All of the camps in this itinerary belong to the "Long Run" initiative which fosters community development.
Kenya is home to the Great Wildebeest Migration in the Masai Mara and it is the birthplace of the iconic 'African Safari' experience. Boasting open savanna plains, snow-capped mountains and desert terrain, it's a marvel in terms of biodiversity.
You'll stay in luxury tented lodges with private viewing areas and the traditional Maasai people will teach you about the bush and their culture. Spot the Big 5, get to know communities and bear witness to what a true African sunset looks like. We've called this a sustainable tourism safari because all the lodges included are associated with the Long Run Initiative which fosters community development and biodiversity conservation
